Abstract:This report summarizes the tasks and findings of the ICT Project R27-163, Adapting Construction Staking to Modern Technology, which aims to develop written procedures for the use of modern technologies (such as GPS and civil information modeling) in construction staking of highway projects, for inclusion in the Illinois Department of Transportation’s (IDOT’s) Construction Manual. Six primary research tasks were completed: (1) conducting a comprehensive literature review on the use of modern technologies in construction staking by state departments of transportation (DOTs) and contractors; (2) conducting a survey to gather information from state DOTs and contractors on current practices employed by other states; (3) identifying a set of potential practices for employment in Illinois; (4) conducting a survey to gather feedback from IDOT staff and Illinois contractors; (5) developing draft summarized written procedures for review by the Technical Review Panel (TRP); and (6) developing complete written procedures for the use of modern technologies in construction staking of highway projects, for inclusion in IDOT’s Construction Manual. The written procedures are intended to support construction-staking processes when a contractor employs such technologies. The procedures are expected to enable the employment of these technologies in Illinois and, in turn, to offer major opportunities for quality improvements, cost savings, and expediting project delivery.
